Purpose of couples psychotherapy
The purpose of couples psychotherapy is to achieve better communication, increase trust, enhance intimacy, and deal with issues that create discord in the relationship. Couples therapy works to understand underlying tension and how to address them to cultivate a positive, loving relationship.
Romantic relationships are difficult, and conflicts will inevitably arise in all partnerships. Relationships can end, and frequently do, whether it’s due to an affair or betrayal of trust, issues with money, shifting desires within the relationship, divergent ideas, or continual arguing. The area of conflict can only sometimes be solved with the intervention of a specialist as the couple are unable to resolve it on their own. Initially, both individuals attend sessions together with the option to have private discussions later on.
